Volterra Associate Kieran Arter talks at Annual Transport Practitioners’ Meeting

Kieron ArterKieran Arter, Associate at Volterra, spoke at the 14th Annual Transport Practitioners’ Meeting in Nottingham on 29 June discussing “How transport supports economic development”. He summarised the treatment of economic benefits in transport appraisal, ranging from traditional user benefits to the more recent thinking on Wider Economic Benefits.

Kieran also emphasised the importance of taking dynamic impacts into account – that is, the ways in which transport schemes affect patterns of land use. He explained the results of work undertaken by Volterra to better understand the relationship between accessibility and employment / population density, arguing that it is important to take land use changes into account within appraisal.
